If you're in Pennsylvania and you feel the ground shaking, don't be too alarmed, it's likely just Penn State head coach Pat Chambers and the rest of Happy Valley celebrating. In what has to be considered an integral recruiting win for Penn State basketball, Class of 2015 forward Josh Reaves (No. 30 SG, No. 93 National) has decided to make himself a Nittany Lion.
I am truly blessed to announce that I have committed to Penn State University #WeAre #PennState Thank you everyone for your support.— Joshua Reaves (@jreaves23) July 2, 2014
Reaves is the second Top-100 player Chambers has landed in the past year, in a display of recruiting excellence that is usually reserved for the gridiron Lions.
The 6'4" shooting guard spurned more traditional college basketball hotbeds Boston College, Georgetown, Virginia Commonwealth, Maryland and Villanova in favor of stepping into what looks to be a burgeoning basketball program in Happy Valley.
Reaves, who attended the Penn State Advanced Skills camp this past weekend, is currently playing for Team Takeover (D.C.) of the NIKE EYBL league, where he is third on the team in scoring.
